two decades ago, washington had just completed its first century. i sat and listened as former governor booth gardner presented us with a challenge heading into washington's second century. he said "either we respond to international competition, or we doom ourselves and our children to a dramatic slide to second- rate status in the world." we chose to answer this challenge, with a unique formula for international success that has made us who we are today, with businesses, entrepreneurs, state government, all working together. now it's 24 years later. i have a new job, a new vantage point, and the world looks much different. a once vibrant and growing state economy was brought low by the gross irresponsibility by those on wall street. as a result we have suffered 4 years of recession, with almost 300,000 people in washington looking for work. too many of our families are on the brink of losing their home. parents lie awake at night wondering how they can provide for their children's future. but we remain an optimistic state, a visionary state and an innovative state. time has n

, our position in wisconsin is a stark contrast to the chaos in washington, dc. while many of our nation's leaders fail to make tough decisions, we decided to avoid failure by embracing true reform. still, there is much work to be done. as i travel the state, it is clear to me why our focus on helping create 250,000 jobs by 2015 is about much more than just fulfilling a campaign promise. simply put, it is about helping improve the lives of 250,000 more families in wisconsin. you see, adding a new job is about more than just a number. every time another job is created, and a new employee is hired, it means that another family has someone working in their household. for many, that means fewer worries about putting bread on the table or clothes on the backs of their kids -- or even making the mortgage payment on the house. i will work hard each and every day, so we can help people all across wisconsin have the chance to have a job, and work hard to support themselves and their families for generations to come. with bold vision and bright hope for the future, we are turning things around. we
